Clarrinda Ella Swindell was born in July of 1863 in Newark, Licking County, Ohio to James and Mehetable. It is believed that she married a man named A. F. Gunn somewhere in the Pennsylvania area. He was born in Wisconsin in March of 1871.
Both of his parents were born in Germany. Nothing more is known of them at this time.

As of 1900, Clarrinda and A. F. are found to be living on Webster Street in the Pittsburgh area, and had been married for four years. They had one daughter born in Jan of 1895.
I do not know for sure if this daughter belongs to A. F. Gunn, but her name is Jennie Gunn and is listed as his daughter. She was born in PA.

Clarrinda is listed as Ella C Swindell at 530 Grant Street in Pittsburgh, PA. in 1890 according to the 1888-1892 city directory. This is the same address her brother Lee J. Swindell was living at during this time.

There is mention of a niece and nephew, both of Pittsburgh, PA., in the death notice of Whitfield Ackley on 07 Apr 1907, which was their mother's twin brother.
In addition, in the death notice of James Swindell on 06 Aug. 1917, it mentions he died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ella Gunn. There is no mention of her husband or daughter at either of these times.

The next mention of Clarrinda Ella that is found is in the 1920 federal Census showing Clarrinda Gunn as a boarder at the home of a family of John Smith. She is shown as about 50 years old and a widow.

We do not know when or where she died, nor anything further about her daughter or husband.
